    Just me. My mom liked my HD7 when I first got it. Then got an android phone for herself. Got my sister and niece iPhones. Got my two brothers androids. Gave me an iPod Touch. My dad prefers his feature phone. Friends of mine from Richmond and Chicago just got Android phones.

    Moved and everyone here has iPhones and Android devices. I have never seen so many android devices just walking down the street before... I haven't seen one other WP yet, and no one seems interested in knowing about mine when I'm out using it.

    Just me so far. I am the tech guy when it comes to family and friends too. However they all insist on android or iphone's. They all want me to fix their computers or help them set up their home netoworks or even their andrioid / iphone problems. They ask me first when it comes to what they should get when buying a new computer, tv, or any other kind of electronic except when it comes to phones.

    It's usually something dumb like "But the iphone integrates with itunes! So that's why I have one." or "Android is what everybody else has so I want to get that."

    ugh....
    same here, im getting really upset with my sis and gf both going iphone by end of year :( feels like no one believes me and with the stunt Bell decided to pull off, i don't know what i should do

    Dude, you're definitely in the minority. Maybe you work at Microsoft's Windows Phone division? LOL!

    None, all the executives at work are addicted to blackberry and all my family is on iPhones. They all come to me with computer issues but when it comes to phone I just say "I don't know iOS, sorry"

    Feels kinda good to say that. I hate being the go-to guy.

    Good Job!! Should we ask MS for a cut of their marketing budget? ;)
    What MS need to do is stop relying on the fools at the ATT store and what not to act stupid when someone asks about WP and hire people like us to push the phones. I know all there is to know about my phone and the ATT people stand there and scratch their head if you ask them anything about WP. I for one would be more than happy to show people why they should come to WP instead of iPhone or Android. In fact, I do that now for free. I have gotten a few to actually consider it and at least two who are going to get one when the upgrades are here at the end of the year. I have sold one Titan, and one Focus S and don't get any compensation except for the satifaction of another couple converts.

    Well, probably depends on the ATT store. The larger one around here has a few decent people (at least not trying to steer people towards certain phones), and the Focus S is actually pretty close to the front (HD7S, slightly less close, all others near the backroom door!), but the Best Buy I went to recently (was really looking for a Focus S in stock at that point)... didn't know what a Focus S was (though were helpful in trying to locate on in their cabinet). At least they weren't bashing WP7, lol.

    Im in a highly iPhone dominated area..I'll be at work and 5 people around me will pull out an iPhone. Everyone in my family has droids..
    I don't know a single friend, family member, co-worker or person on the street that even knows Microsoft makes cell phones....I don't think Verizon knows it either.

    I talked my sister into getting the Trophy. She isn't completely happy with WP, but she likes it a lot more now that Mango has been released. She's my only relative with a WP.

    BlackBerries are still dominant because large part of the population is still trapped in the BBM network. Other more tech savvy (and thick pocketed) cousins used iPhone, or Android.
    Same with colleagues or friends, they usually use BB or Android (or both).

    Can’t try to sell them WP either because there’s no marketplace or official support in this country.

    ...I don't think Verizon knows it either.
    This is a good point to make when talking about my family members. I'm from/my family lives in the Beaumont, Tx area. The area, especially the more rural areas around it, is densely Verizon. With only the Trophy available on Verizon, I'm not really very willing to suggest Windows Phone to these people. It just happened to be that my sister was available for an upgrade when the Trophy was just released, so I didn't feel bad, since she can get a good two years out of it. However, there is no way I'd want someone to start a two-year contract with a Trophy today. Just a thought.

    Agreed. Even though I like it, the phone has a very high "meh"ness factor. There are much better options out there and not just for windows phone. But this is verizon's fault, as for some reason they have the best coverage, but the crappiest made phones.

    True, to us, it's pretty ho-hum. But four people I know have it and love it to death. Don't discount the UX when it comes to Windows Phone.

    Granted, I'd want them on something like a Titan or Focus S, all said and done.

    they all seem to like it but
    My only problem trying to convert people is that there is no choice on
    Verizon or Sprint or even Tmobile.
    and I keep pushing that intergration is coming with Windows 8 and xbox so they know everything is going to look and feel the same..

    Just me but my girl told me that if it weren't for the fact that her company lets her BB be used as a personal and corperate device that they pay for, she would have been on the WP7 party boat too.

    I am the go to tech guy for friends and family but for some reason they never listen to me, buy what they want, then I either have to fix it or watch tthem get what I suggested in the first place. I stopped trying.

    And every time my girls son's G2 rebootes or freezes he starts asking me more and more about WP7, especially the fact that he is a huge XBL kid. Son they will see the light and a life without suffering.
